Tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing 2021 line up, start time, songs and dances – Week 5

When is Strictly on tonight?

Strictly Come Dancing 2021 is back tonight – what time does it start and who’s dancing what?

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman are back in the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom this weekend, as the quest to lift the Glitterball Trophy continues.

The 11 remaining couples will each take to the floor in a bid to impress the judging panel: Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke.

As the competition reaches its fifth week, the judges will be looking for the couples to really show what they are capable of. After the judges have given their scores, the public will have the chance to cast their votes.

The two couples with the lowest combined judges’ scores and viewer votes will face the dreaded dance-off on Sunday’s Results show.
